This introduction to the structure of the central nervous system demonstrates thatthe best way to learn how the brain is put together is to understand something about why. Itexplains why the brain is put together as it is by describing basic functions and key aspects of itsevolution and development. This approach makes the structure of the brain and spinal cord morecomprehensible as well as more interesting and memorable. The book offers a detailed outline of theneuroanatomy of vertebrates, especially mammals, that equips students for further explorations ofthe field. Gaining familiarity with neuroanatomy requires multiple exposures to the material withmany incremental additions and reviews. Thus the early chapters of this book tell the story of thebrain's origins in a first run-through of the entire system; this is followed by other such surveysin succeeding chapters, each from a different angle. The book proceeds from basic aspects of nervecells and their physiology to the evolutionary beginnings of the nervous system to differentiationand development, motor and sensory systems, and the structure and function of the main parts of thebrain. Along the way, it makes enlightening connections to evolutionary history and individualdevelopment. Brain Structure and Its Origins can be used for advancedundergraduate or beginning graduate classes in neuroscience, biology, psychology, and relatedfields, or as a reference for researchers and others who want to know more about thebrain.

Gerald E. Schneider is Professor of Neuroscience in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at MIT.
